The Best Ecommerce Platform for Your Ashland Website

If your Ashland e-commerce company needs a platform recommendation, we need to know what your website's goals are. There isn't one e-commerce platform that's perfect for every Ashland website.

For WooCommerce and Shopify projects, we have separate development teams. This allows our local ecommerce website developers to specialize in a particular development environment to provide expert advice and service.

Ashland WooCommerce Website Design Services

The most popular Ashland website content management system is WordPress. If you want an ecommerce website using WordPress, you'll likely need a WooCommerce web designer in Ashland.

In Ashland, we help startups and e-commerce businesses get started with WooCommerce.

These are some of the reasons our ecommerce website designers like WooCommerce:

  • We recommend WordPress and WooCommerce for Ashland web design projects that require a custom designed theme, but are working on a limited budget. We have our own custom WooCommerce theme that is based on Understrap and makes a great starting point for Ashland WooCommerce websites. Shopify theme development can be more expensive for Ashland e-commerce clients.
  • If your Ashland business website runs on WordPress, we recommend WooCommerce. It doesn't make sense to spend a lot of time and money redesigning your content-based website just to add ecommerce.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for Ashland web companies who prefer open-source software. You don't have to pay a monthly fee to use WordPress or WooCommerce. As an alternative, Shopify has expensive monthly fees (depending on your plan) and their apps are often more expensive than WooCommerce or WordPress plugins.
  • For Ashland businesses that need a product builder, we recommend WooCommerce. If you are using WordPress and WooCommerce, there are numerous product builder plugins to consider and we've got experience developing custom builders in WooCommerce. Don't worry though, there are third-party apps for Ashland websites running Shopify that need a product configurator.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for those in an industry not accepted by Shopify.

Ashland Shopify Web Development Services

Shopify is the most popular SaaS e-commerce platform. If you want to run an e-commerce website using Shopify, you'll need a Shopify web designer in Ashland.

A lot of our Shopify developers have experience designing websites for new and existing businesses in Kentucky.

Here are some of the reasons our ecommerce web developers often recommend Shopify:

  • Ashland merchants looking for a hosted ecommerce platform should check out Shopify. With Shopify, you can run an ecommerce business in Ashland without constantly updating plugins and software.
  • For Ashland web companies that don't need a lot of custom features, we recommend Shopify. The cost of developing custom functionality with Shopify is higher than with WordPress. Additionally, Shopify apps often have monthly fees that really add up, in comparison to the less expensive WordPress plugin options.
  • We recommend Shopify for Ashland e-commerce businesses that rely heavily on fast turnaround times for development and marketing initiatives. For testing out a new product, it's usually faster to set up a Shopify website and go through various apps and design ideas to test conversion rate optimization.

Redesigning Existing Ecommerce Websites

Ashland ecommerce sites that don't perform, don't function, or don't convert well might need a redesign or overhaul.

Take your e-commerce redesign in Ashland seriously. It's possible to lose search rankings and online sales if your web developer forgets to create 301 redirects, completely restructures your URLs, or improperly reorganizes your product catalog.

Before starting Ashland e-commerce website redesign projects, we like to thoroughly review your ecommerce business to understand the big picture. Here are some of the things to keep in mind when redesigning Ashland ecommerce sites:

  • You have an e-commerce site in Ashland. How do people get there? It's important to maintain URL structures or implement 301 redirects if most of your online sales come from organic search traffic. It's also good to keep the same product categories, breadcrumb trails, and page content throughout the development of your Ashland website.
  • What do customers think about your Ashland website? If your online shoppers aren't happy with the design of the website then it is okay to make big changes. It's advisable to be cautious with design changes if you've already got good conversion rates.
  • Are you moving your e-commerce platform? If so, you need to understand the new Ashland website won't work like your old one did. Things like entering products, fulfilling orders, updating customer info, and going through check out will be different.

Determine Goals for Your Ashland Ecommerce Web Design Service

You can pay a lot of money to build an ecommerce site in Ashland. Make a list of the things you want your Ashland e-commerce website to accomplish before you hire a developer. Keeping track of measurable goals will help you keep your e-commerce site progressing in the right direction. The most common goals we've seen for Ashland ecommerce website design projects include:

  • To build out an online store for a new Ashland business.
  • Upgrade an old Ashland e-commerce system into a new one to improve security or functionality.
  • To redesign an e-commerce site to improve user experience (UX), reduce bounce rates, and improve conversion rates.
  • Improving the shopping experience by making it faster and more responsive.
  • To fix web accessibility problems for ADA and WCAG compliance.

We've provided such Kentucky ecommerce web design solutions before and are excited by the prospect of helping with your new ecommerce website design! We can help you put together a list of goals for your Ashland e-commerce website if you need it!

Questions to Ask Your Ashland Ecommerce Web Designer

You should ask plenty of questions before hiring an ecommerce website design firm in Ashland. While the answer will be valuable, how it's delivered should be even more important. Check to see how receptive the sales team is to detailed questions. This will provide insight into future communication as the Ashland ecommerce web development service gets started. Here are a few of the ecommerce website development questions we get from businesses in and around Kentucky:

  • Is your ecommerce web design outsourced? WebCitz doesn't outsource ecommerce development because we have our own Shopify and WooCommerce developers for your Ashland website.
  • If you change URLs, do you set up 301 redirects? While WebCitz tries to keep the URL structure the same, sometimes it can't be done. We do create 301 redirects for Ashland ecommerce web developments that will have a different URL structure.
  • When you start an ecommerce website design project, do you make design mockups? WebCitz makes design mockups for all Ashland WooCommerce development projects, but we don't create design mockups for Shopify projects that are on a restricted budget.
  • Are you able to help Ashland businesses choose an e-commerce platform? WebCitz helps Ashland clients choose the right ecommerce platform. The answer is typically dependent upon the web design and ecommerce functionality requirements.
  • What's the turnaround time for Ashland ecommerce website development services? WebCitz usually gets Ashland ecommerce web design projects done in 3-4 months, but it can take up to 9-12 months for really complex e-commerce websites.
  • Your Ashland ecommerce website designer should have a ecommerce portfolio or client reviews. Check out our ecommerce development portfolio, ecommerce case studies, and dozens of client reviews!

How We Design the Best Ashland Ecommerce Websites

Efforts to design an e-commerce website in Ashland should follow a formal process. Here's how we design Ashland ecommerce sites:

Discovery Phone Calls

There are typically multiple discovery calls to learn more about your Ashland company, your history with ecommerce, your development expectations, and your future goals. Having everyone involved in the ecommerce project voice their opinion helps minimize confusion.

Kickoff Discussion

When you're ready to move forward with our ecommerce web development company for your Ashland website development, sign the proposal, submit a down payment, and schedule a kick off call. Everybody will have a chance to talk about how the project will unfold, who will handle each stage of the design, and how long the turnaround time will be for completion.

Design Mockups or Template Search

If your future Ashland ecommerce website design is in WordPress with WooCommerce, or your design budget accommodates a custom design in Shopify, then the first phase of the project will begin with mocking up the design of your website. This way, everyone is on the same page about how your site will look and feel before an e-commerce developer starts. This is where we start helping you select a theme for your Ashland ecommerce site if you opted for a template-based approach within Shopify.

Ecommerce Website Development

The longest part of your Ashland ecommerce build will be the development. This includes everything for data migration, theme customization, functionality development, and much more! Throughout the process, you'll be able to follow along via a password-protected development website.

Website Launch (Plus Website Training!)

When the ecommerce web design project is nearly done, we'll start working with you on training. If you're comfortable with managing the e-commerce site, let's schedule a time that works for everyone to launch your Ashland e-commerce site! You can even get a checklist for launching the ecommerce site if you're interested!

We've been working on our Kentucky ecommerce development process for more than 18 years. We have incredible experience designing, developing, and launching successful e-commerce websites throughout United States!

Additional Services for Your Ashland Ecommerce Web Design Project

The development of the website is only one part of a successful ecommerce storefront in Ashland. Here are some other services, which are completely optional, to help you get the most out of your Ashland e-commerce site:

  • You can get multimedia to showcase your Ashland web business from our on-site video production team.
  • We have a digital marketing and search engine optimization team to help you rank your ecommerce products higher in Ashland search results, or nationwide.

WebCitz helped the Oshkosh Area Humane Society with our new website and they were great to work with. Responsive, professional and affordable. I think the biggest perk for us was having someone local we could talk to for assistance instead of long wait times. Definitely would recommend to anyone looking to start up or revamp their website.
